Bruno Mars brings 24K Magic World Tour to Amalie Arena

Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars will bring his 24K Magic World Tour to the Tampa Bay area for one performance on Thursday, Oct. 19, 8 p.m., at Amalie Arena, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa.

Tickets start at $41.25. Tickets are available at the McDonald’s ticket office at Amalie Arena, through Ticketmaster outlets and online at Ticketmaster.com. To order tickets by phone, call 800-745-3000.

Mars, the world-renowned, multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter launched the tour in March at Sportpalais in Antwerp, Belgium. The tour continued through Europe, hitting dates in London, Paris, Madrid, Zurich, Copenhagen, Berlin and more.

The North American leg kicked off July 15 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and includes more than 45 cities across the United States and Canada.

The 24K Magic World Tour celebrates Mars’ new album “24K Magic,” released in November 2016 on Atlantic Records. His third studio album entered the R&B and hip-hop charts on Billboard, staying atop the R&B albums chart for more than 20 weeks. The album spawned three singles, including the title track, “That’s What I Like” and “Versace on the Floor.” “That’s What I Like” became Mars’s seventh No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. “24K Magic” has sold over 2 million album-equivalent units in the United States.

The 24K Magic World Tour marks Mars’ first full-length tour since 2013’s hugely successful Moonshine Jungle World Tour, an international blockbuster that sold 2 million tickets worldwide across 155 sold-out dates.

A multiple Grammy Award winner and 20-time Grammy nominee, Mars has sold over 170 million singles worldwide and over 26 million albums worldwide, affirming him one of the best-selling artists of all time. The critically acclaimed singer/songwriter also spends time as producer, director and musician.

In 2014, Mars dominated charts with the worldwide smash single “Uptown Funk.” The RIAA diamond certified smash made history as the longest-leading Billboard Hot 100 singles of the 2010s, and is only the 10th single in the chart’s 57-year history to spend at least 14 weeks at No. 1. “Uptown Funk” has received a number of honors, among them three 2016 Grammy Awards, including the coveted Record of the Year award. In addition, the “Uptown Funk” companion video received the 2016 MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video.

In 2016, Mars returned to the Super Bowl Halftime stage to perform alongside Beyoncé and Coldplay. Mars’ historic 2014 performance made NFL history as the second most watched Super Bowl Halftime Show ever, earning a record-breaking total viewership of over 115.3 million, all while being the youngest artist ever to serve as the sole Super Bowl Halftime headliner.

According to Billboard, Mars scored his first five Hot 100 No. 1 singles faster than any male artist since Elvis Presley. As a singer, songwriter and producer, Mars has now massed an incredible catalog of 35 Hot 100 hits to date.
